Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on March 2, 2020. A double IPA fermented with our house yeast, which produces stone fruit esters. We then ferment the base beer on several pounds of passion fruit and Madagascar vanilla. Dry-hopped with Citra.

I love the uniqueness of this one. The passion fruit and vanilla really come through and the bitterness/sour is unique. I can see why not everyone would like it. It’s like a dessert IPA but the sourness makes it not overbearing for me like some milkshake IPAs. I wouldn’t miss this one again.

Look: reminds me of canned apricot juice. Thick and bright orange.
Smell: smell is passionfruit all the way.
Taste: there’s a lot going on here. Definately passionfruit, citrus and vanilla. Way to much pepper. There is just a little hop bitterness combined with a tart finish. Never had anything quit like it before.
Feel: mouthfeel is thick and heavy, yet silky.
Overall: this is my first Aslin beer. Not a fan of this one. I wouldnt even categorize it as an ipa

Looks hazy and dark like a fruit smoothie. Smells really skunky, literally. Tastes spkunky and tart and fruity. Sours are not my favorite and this is the most sour and tart I ever had. It sure is interesting though.

From the most recent can release

Appearance - Pours opaque and dull orange in color with an off-white, near finger width head and several chunks of yeast accumulating at the bottom of the glass. The head shows fair retention before breaking down to a thin, broken layer and with a fair ring found around the edges. Some broken lines and small spotting make up the lacing.

Smell - The passionfruit stands out prominently, along with lesser orange, vanilla and pineapple.

Taste - Follows the nose. Tropical fruitiness (pineapple, mango, papaya) and citrus (orange, grapefruit) upfront with a touch of vanilla that emerges more as the flavor profile progresses. Tartness kicks in mid-taste along with a hint of peppery spice and some stronger grapefruit juiciness. The finish peaks with tart notes, along with a slightly bitter pithy edge and lingersweetness.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with light, tingly carbonation. Firm, silky texture with a pleasing, quenchable finish.

Overall - The sister beer of Johann Needs a Bigger Broat, but with the added tartness of the passionfruit. This works perfectly with the tropical and vanilla components. Man. Hard to say which one I like better, truth be told, but I think I have to give a slight nod to 'Broat' for it's balance.

This beer was disappointing. Tongue-lashing acidity from the start. Weak vanilla notes. Only slightly more palatable than Aslin's DDH Neutrino, which was terrible.

The beer pours a nice white and creamy head that dissipates fairly quickly. The beer itself is a cloudy orange with yellow notes around it.

The smell and taste are very good. The main notes that come out strongly are the passionfruit and the vanilla. The passionfruit gives a nice floral and sweet note while the vanilla gives it a bit of a sugary creaminess accent. The smell and taste also have a bit of pineapple to them. There is a slight tartiness to it, which is a good contrast to the vanilla.

The feel is pretty good. It's a heavy body but seems to have a lighter texture than expected. There is a slight acidic feel to it.

Overall, a really good DIPA and pretty fruity to boot. The vanilla is great since it adds quite a bit to the beer.

Pours dark orange with one one finger white head. Light lacing. Aroma mango, pineapple, passionfruit, slight pine and light vanilla. Taste follows the nose with a fruit tartness and creamy mouth feel. Really niceDIPA.

Most extreme fruit aroma I've probably ever smelled in a beer. Taste requires some adjustments from the normal Aslin DIPAs. Has a grapefruit pithy tartness/touch sourness to it. Very excellent all around though. Not really picking up the vanilla in aroma nor taste. Mouthfeel is pure creaminess and delightful.
